“Cricket is not everyone’s cup of tea."
Coronavirus pandemic has restricted public gatherings all across the world. With social distancing being the need of the hour, sporting events have taken place with no or minimal fans in attendance. IPL 2020, which switched bases to UAE this year, saw empty stands as viewers tuned in to catch the live action from the safety of their homes. However, things are a bit different in Australia.
With COVID-19 infections slowing to a trickle, India’s ongoing tour to Australia has seen fans marching to stadiums in numbers and supporting their teams while soaking in their favourite sport in person.
But one particular child may have skipped the cricket match from the stadium if it weren’t for his cricket-loving dad.
A viral GIF has been doing the rounds of the Internet since India met up with Australia for the second T20I at Manuka Oval on Sunday. The fans, happy to witness the match up-close, were seen having a ball — except one kid in attendance.

After the conclusion of 15 overs of Australian innings, the camera panned to the crowds showing fans cheering on for their teams when the lens caught a crying child held by the father as everyone around had big smiles on their faces.
Cricket Australia shared a GIF of the incident stating that cricket wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea after all.
